THE ULTIMATE UTILITY JACKET
I’ve been lusting over bomber jackets for a couple of months now. They seem to be a must-have in everyone’s wardrobe this season. I was sent this perfect khaki bomber jacket from My Chic Runway, a new fashion company based in London, they have some gorgeous celebrity-inspired piece that you guys NEED to check out!
I tend to have two different daily styles; tailored and classic, and then casual grunge. It all depends on my mood! This look is ideal for going from day-to-night with the oversized top being a dress matched with my trusty thigh-highs. The jersey is such a laid back piece which is easy to throw on for an instant effortless appearance.
The print on the dress is similar to that of a classic band tee, a massive trend that kicked in this summer. Personally I love making this dress as shirt by tying a knot at the front making it slightly cropped, it brings in the waist and looks really relaxed with a pair of leggings!
So bomber jackets are this year’s duster coat, the original pilot’s jacket has become such a popular style this season, it’s now become a tailored outerwear piece! The satin jacket even has authentic military styled arm zips, its definitely keeping to its utility root! It’s very lightweight on but has a bright orange lining which is ridiculously comfy and warm, perfect for the chilly weather!
These jackets are super versatile and this one is no exception. It can look amazing dressed down with
this t-shirt dress or paired with classic fitted pieces, or it can incorporate both the urban off-duty look with a classy outfit!
Keeping it very simple, the look is only accessorised with a basic velvet choker, I never really liked chokers but I have to say that it just brings the whole look together. Since the choker is black and has a slight suede look it matches with my thigh-highs. I know, I know, I’m wearing these boots again! However in my defence they are gorgeous and just bring this whole look together.
